Below is the original text from this story:
Robinson Police say a standoff ended Wednesday morning after several hours with the suspect committing suicide.
“This is not what we hope for, we always hope for a peaceful resolution so this is unfortunate but it does occur, when individuals suffer from mental crisis, you never know what the outcome may be,“ said Lieutenant Tracy O’Connor with Robinson Police Department.
Aided by multiple other law enforcement agencies, Robinson police went to the home in the Heston Circle area of town around 1:30am.
The standoff resulted in the closure of streets and the delay in picking up Robinson ISD students.
Grieg Drive was closed off as the incident developed.
Robinson ISD posted the following statement on their Facebook page early Wednesday:
“Due to an ongoing situation near Grieg Drive this morning, the district will be delayed picking up students that ride route 6.“
Robinson police say they believe the barricaded subject is a 29-year-old man suffering from mental problems.
Robinson Police Lt Tracy O’Conner said the initial call was medically related and came in at 1:50 a.m.
The person in the home displayed a weapon so police backed off and set up a perimeter, with the SWAT team then set up.
Sometime during the initial contact, six or seven shots were fired inside the home, though officers did not know if they were directed toward them.
He said there was only one person inside the home.
Contact was made with the individual and gas was injected into the home after the shots were fire.
Contact was lost for a time after that but was later re-established.
Officers hoped to resolve the situation peacefully.
“I’ve lived here about six years and this is definitely a complete anomaly for this neighborhood. This is not the type of neighborhood for standoffs and police activity, usually if anybody is, if you see any kind of activity in this neighborhood it’s kids playing or people walking,“ said Andrew Kendrick, neighbor.
Kendrick lives across the street from where the standoff unfolded, his house was in the middle of gunfire and says he’s thankful his children weren’t home at the time.
“Over the course of the night I did hear several gunshots, it was quite the terrifying event,“ said Kendrick. “It was a terrifying, absolutely terrifying morning and night.“
Units from Robinson PD, Hewitt PD, Woodway PD, McLennan County Sheriff’s Office,.AMR ambulance and the Robinson Volunteer Fire Department were at the scene.
